Colorado Hummingbird

Just returned from the mountains of Colorado. Took a fairly ordinary hummingbird photo and had some fun with it.

Re: Colorado Hummingbird

Love those Hummingbirds. I followed along with the glass look, but with a circular effect. Changed bird to the color of a few of our visitors. Finished up with Impressionist for a paint effect.

Re: Colorado Hummingbird

Hi, Becky from Mesa - I'm in Mesa also. Nice hummer photo to begin with - thanks for sharing!

Did some distortions - polar coord. to get the wings up and out, and diffuse glow with sky blue, and crystallize, accented edges and a bit of added paint.

Hummers are so beautiful that I can't improve, but it's still fun to play with one.
